The Varsity Lady Braves finished out their season with a strong showing at the state tournament last weekend. After their exciting, come-from-behind win over Lewiston the previous weekend, the Braves earned the right to open the state tournament versus the top-ranked Eagle Mustangs. Boise was undaunted, and fearlessly competed in the opener at the Idaho Center. As a result, the Braves jumped out to an early 7-1 lead, utilizing strong fan support to help their momentum. The Mustangs, however, would close the gap to 7-6 before the end of the first quarter. In the second, Eagle found its rhythm, out-scoring the Braves 15-9 and entering half with a 5-point advantage. The third quarter was a see-saw battle with Eagle maintaining its led. Boise would continue to fight, and with a little under three minutes left in the 4th, they had the ball down only 3 points. Unfortunately, the Braves were unable to convert and opened the door for the Mustangs to close out the game at the free throw line. Boise dropped their opening round 37-46 to Eagle.
With the loss, the Braves were relegated to the consolation bracket and faced a feisty Bonneville team from Idaho Falls in a loser-out contest. Both teams had difficulty scoring early, and Boise held a slight 6-4 lead after the first quarter. In the second, Bonneville used some tenacious defense as well as a strong offensive rebounding attack to gain second-chance opportunities and a 15-12 halftime advantage. Boise rallied in the third and battled back - going up as much as 7 points before some costly turnovers allowed the Bees to even the score at 29. With one quarter remaining, the Braves continued to fight, but the veteran Bees team proved too much in the end. Boise dropped its final game of season, 40-47.
Though the Braves may have lost both games at the State Tournament, they competed well and made a strong showing overall. With such a young group, the Braves hope to return to state again next year and make an even larger impression. Congratulations go out to Sophomore Peyton McFarland for earning Second Team, All-SIC, and to both Junior Syd Davis and Sophomore Madi Williams who earned Honorable Mention, All-SIC. More kudos goes out to Freshman Allison Ross who was honored by IdahoSports.com as a Second Team All-State Tournament selection. Lastly - congratulations to Senior Melissa Golo who has been chosen to participate in the Senior All-Star game being held on Wednesday, March 7th at 6pm at Capital High School.
The Braves will celebrate the seasons of all three of their teams at their end-of-season banquet on Wednesday, March 14th. Great season, Braves!
